Maureen Johnson

From Queen's Birthday, 11:07 am on 3 June 2013

Author Maureen Johnson writes young adult fiction - among her works are novel The Key to the Golden Firebird, and the Shades of London series. She's calling for an end to gender-specific book covers, saying that the "chick lit" covers automatically given to books by female authors is limiting who ends up reading them. She explains why it matters, in a world where readers really do judge a book by its cover.
